Thread: Wisconsin newbie

    Wisconsin newbie

    I'm new and thought I'd introduce myself. We're northwest of Madison Wisconsin and are shopping for property and hope to start building next spring. We're also hoping to take the class in Feb.

    Anyone building in Wisconsin?

    I just built one outside of Osseo, and will be working on another outside of Wausau in a couple weeks.

    Does the UP count - come up anytime you want - Foundation, logs stacked and roof done - with a little chinking done as well

    Excellent. Love da UP. We spent a fair amount of time up there over the summer. We were hoping to spend some time in Hiawatha National Forest as the leaves were changing, but the schedule hasn't been conducive.

    Could be fun. We're about 7 hours away. We might be able to break away for a weekend to come up next month.

    Hi Darin, welcome! I went to college in Madison, political science. Haven't been back for ages, discovered Washington state.
    Shortest winter in the U. S!! Oh yeah it's possible to live above the latitude of Madison with a SHORTER winter, So my wife & I settled in the Spokane area. Glad to have you on board

    Short winter? ... Spokane?... Well maybe if you don't mind snow.

    PS... I like Spokane just fine. Great log home country... I just never thought of growing tomatoes there.
    Every time I have strayed from the teachings of Skip Ellsworth it has cost me money.

    I love the mask mandate. I hardly ever have to bruh my teeth anymore.
